GBPAC marketing manager, Chris Hale, is looking forward to the upcoming season.  “This season is really exciting to me because I see something in almost every show that fits my tastes,” Hale said.

Some of the big performances on the schedule include comedian Jay Leno, the “Blue Man Group” and “Voctave.” One show that Hale is excited about is “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” which is a community collaboration between. wcfsymphony, the UNI School of Music, Waterloo Community Playhouse and Cedar Falls Community Theatre.  The show will be performing April 22-23. 

Hale also mentioned GBPAC has started planning for  next season. “Planning for 2022-2023 is already well underway,” Hale said. “Programming at the Gallagher Bluedorn is a never-ending cycle with a lot that goes into it from researching shows, meeting with various reps, assessing our schedule and budget, conducting focus groups with various stakeholders. It’s a complex process that goes on behind the scenes to plan a season that not many are aware of.”
